Camarillo Springs Golf Course development challenged

A top-down look at the proposed housing development and improvements at the Camarillo Springs Gulf Course.  City Council Tony Trembley stated last week he will request a future agenda item to discuss the development's future.

A proposed housing development that would shorten the 18-hole Camarillo Springs Golf Course may not be up to par.

Councilman Tony Trembley said at last week’s City Council he will direct staff to schedule a discussion on the possibility of rescinding a general plan amendment to redesignate 31 acres of the golf course to low-medium density residential.

Called the Greens at Camarillo Springs, the project would convert the property into 248 senior, single-family residential homes. The remaining 151 acres will be reduced to 12-hole golf course with additional amenities and improvements.

Over 20 members of the public addressed the council last week and another 25 written comments were submitted ahead of the meeting. Comments were overwhelmingly against the development.

“I would lose my view,” wrote Joyce Maggio, a 21-year Camarillo Springs resident in her opposition. “All the animals would disappear. My home would (definitely) lose value, and from what I can tell, I will not have the lake for a backyard as promised.”
